    Windows won't remember notification setting

    Hi Thomas,

    Thank you for being part of Microsoft Community.

    To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows 10 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows

    Note: Check the title
    “How to reset the computer to start as usual after clean boot troubleshooting” for reverting to normal mode.

    Note: This also applies to Windows 10

    Do get back to us for any issues pertaining in the future. We will be happy to help.

  3. Windows won't remember notification setting

    Hi there, I have a wired problem.

    There are some application's notification I turn off. But after update from windows 10 build 10240 to build 10586 everytime after I logoff login all notification setting back to previous states. The notification I turn off turn back on again. It's a small
    thing but it is a bit annoying. Anyone have any idea?

  4. Won't remember my settings

    I am also having this issue with the mouse settings not being remembered after a reboot. I also discovered today that my preference to be notified about installing windows updates instead of automatically installing them has been reset. Another setting that isn't remembered EVER is my preference for what browser to use when clicking on a link from an email. EVERY time I get the pop up asking me How do I want to open this, and I check the box to keep using this app, but it still pops up on every link I click. Granted, these are not serious issues, but they are serious annoyances and affect the usability of the OS.
